Episode Summary

Summer Job
To pay off the damage she caused, Mrs. Puff works with SpongeBob for the Krusty Krab.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • wth mr krabs?

    remember when mr krabs used to be in love and shy with puff?well now is a cheap jerk to what this episode is about.
  • Definitely not a good episode for Mrs. Puff

    Basically, the episode is about Mrs. Puff crashing into the Krusty Krab thanks to SpongeBob distracting her with a note he's written. In order to pay for the damages, Mr. Krabs has Mrs. Puff work at the Krusty Krab for the summer, with SpongeBob teaching her the ropes.

    Not only did poor Mrs. Puff get the short end of the stick in this episode, but it brought up some plot holes. First of all, Mr. Krabs and Mrs. Puff were total strangers in this episode, even though they were dating in another episode. Sure, there's the possibility that this episode takes place before "Krusty Love," but those who grew up with the original episode might be confused by this.

    And that's not getting into all the abuse Mrs. Puff had to go through in this episode. At this point, poor Mrs. Puff only seems to be a butt monkey character who cannot stand SpongeBob because he's so annoying and simply cannot learn to drive. And then, whenever she tries to get away from SpongeBob, it only causes more bad luck for her. Not only that, but Mr. Krabs pretty blatantly blackmailed her into working for the Krusty Krab...something no self-respecting business owner would do in real life, unless of course they wanted to go to jail. SpongeBob's obnoxious behavior in the episode only brought more sympathy for Mrs. Puff; no wonder she wanted to get away from SpongeBob so desperately.

    The episode ends with Mrs. Puff becoming fed up with all the craziness at the Krusty Krab, and storming off in a huff, ripping up the note that caused everything in the first place...and getting arrested for littering. She's at first ecstatic that she'll spend four years away from SpongeBob, but then has to go to traffic school (even though she was arrested for littering...huh?). Then, as it turns out, SpongeBob is the teacher of Mrs. Puff's class; this is what his note said. So...how is SpongeBob not able to get his own license, but is somehow able to teach his own class?

    So...yeah. Not a good episode. Too much Mrs. Puff abuse, and too many plot holes.moreless
  • Fair

    It's the end of the year at Mrs. Puff's Boating School, and SpongeBob gives her a note, then, Mrs. Puff drives away and accidentally wrecks into the Krusty Krab's doors. To pay off the damage she did, Mrs. Puff must work as a cashier while Mr. Krabs gives Squidward the summer off. SpongeBob teaches Mrs. Puff what to do, and disguises himself as Duke, an ordinary customer, ordering food. He asks for beans on toast and Mrs. Puff tries to write the order in a note, but SpongeBob whispers her to tell Duke they don't serve beans of toast. Then, Mrs. Puff gets annoyed, but a real customer comes to. SpongeBob tells that she's doing good. She tries to give the customer a Krabby Patty, but she trips in a barrel and wrecks the Krusty Krab. Mrs. Puff and SpongeBob, somehow, rolled the barrel into the ceiling and both falls down in the ground. She runs away, and rips SpongeBob's note, Mrs. Puff is arrested for litering the note. Mrs. Puff believes that she would never see SpongeBob for many years to cpme, but she is sent to the prison's driver's Ed class. Unfortunately, the teacher is SpongeBob! Spongebob tells her that the note said that he got a boating job just like her. Mrs. Puff wants to escape, but is stopped by the police man, and she screams in terror.

  • This was an okay episode, but the worst of the week.

    I thought this was an okay episode. It was nice to see The first Boating School episode in season seven. Mrs.Puff was in a few episodes like Truth or Square, Growth spout and Spongebob's last Stand, but this is the first episode that involves Boating School. I didn't like it how Mr. Krabs kinda forget who Mrs. Puff was. He stole from her in Growth Spout and dated her in Krusty love. Anyways, there were some funny parts. I liked the custome that Spongebob was dressed in during the role playing scene. I also liked the sequence of Spongebob "driving" Mrs. Puff across the krusty krab. But he was so annoying in this episode. Overall okay episode, but not that good by Season 7's standards.

    Overall Grade:C/76%moreless
